Posted: 1/17/2019
Location: Oakland, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:13 Mins
Orb like shape changing light remaining at speed and altitude of plane 30 mins before landing

LOCATION: on a plane heading in Oakland CA, had to be 30 mins before landing.

.WITNESS: not only person who saw it, the person in front of me saw it and also took pictures.

SIGHTING: looked out the window because the person in front of me thought they saw something strange. There was an orb of light following the plane out of the right side a decent distance from the wing. It was level with the plane and we were still at an altitude that wHere no man-made object was build as well as being over unoccupied land. it stayed generally the same distance for the 13 minutes it remained with the plane and changed altitude and shape once or twice. we went through a few clouds and it followed, we went through one big cloud and it was gone.

THOUGHTS: thought it was strange and went quickly went through what it could be but nothing made sense. could not have been a star bc it was not at the right location. could not have been a building bc there was none and it remained at a high altitude and stayed with a plane going at least 300 mph. was not light from the plane because it was white and did not blink. It was not a mechanical light.

REACTION: thought it was cool and made me think of doc Australian skies. thinking of that as I watched it I made some notes and took a few pictures.
